C'mon Klaus out with it!

Klaus,
Please take your time. As we'd want something well done - meticulous & thorough.

Bruce,
It's forthcoming, in about a week. Lots of surprises, too!

Is Klaus' U67 reissue review still forthcoming, or has he done it already and somehow I missed it?

In any case I'm glad to be here to face the facts (in spite of these disappoint my expectations). Education first. Thank you Mr. Heyne.

I sympathize with your predicament, and am afraid the news is not good for you and anyone who hopes that the same capsule installed in the $7k U67 will be better or different than when it's installed in the $3.5k U87Ai.

If my complete tear down and analysis of the U67 reissue (article currently in progress and posted soon) is any indication, the ills that plague the K67/870 capsule have not been cured: high diaphragm tension on still too many of them.

Though there is a way to reduce the tension and, for a balanced response, bring it into a range of past generations, it is laborious and expensive.

Yes, it is. And this mic's response, as that of the U87Ai, therefore is largely affected by the individual response of the actual capsule installed.

Thank you. Then my hope is the new batches of capsules of a $7K mic should be better in terms of consistency. I really don't know if I should buy a new K870 for my 1961 U67, wait a little more, or try a vintage second hand and cross fingers (even though, at this point, all choices seems a cross-fingers-matter to me!).
